Assessment Authoring Tools

Is anyone aware of an open source tool for creating web-based assessments (graded/non-graded tests?) We're potentially using Reload as a SCORM authoring tool, but it appears to be limited with assessment creation. Although there are off-the-shelf tools that support this (QuestionMark, Lectora, etc.) I would have definitely thought there would be an existing application without an associated cost.

Thanks in advance.

Try http://www.courselab.com. They have a free, WSYWIG, SCORM-compliant elearning authoring tool that supports quizzes and assessments. I've had pretty good luck with it and SLK so far. It offers a relatively powerful set of features for developing eLeaning content for free, and there are a few pay-for-use add-ons as well.

Thanks much Jason. This is exactly what I was looking for. I assumed there had to be something like this on the open market.

Cheers,

Ray

I hope it works well for you. I'd be interested to hear how it goes, especially if you run into issues. I did find it necessary to publish in SCORM 1.2 with the previous version. I haven't tried the latest release that came out this month.
